Happy Hobbit Day! Many "Lord of the Rings" fans celebrate September 22, which is Bilbo and Frodo’s birthday. I choose to celebrate it in the most Hobbit-like way possible: making food! This year, I made some lembas to snack on .
As I talk with people about my job at the library, they sometimes ask me if I get asked any weird or frustrating questions. My favorite encounter so far involves education, so there’s no better time to tell it than now, when all the kids are going back to school.
